obama tried to bring in -- hilary was the big rival at the beginning. somebody asked him early on right after he won the nomination would you really be willing to put into your cabinet a rival even if his or her style was an occasional pain in the butt. he quoted lincoln. ep said the country is in peril, strongest people i want by my side. he tried to bring in judd greg and biden. the trouble with our country it's so divided the other party feel it's a traitor to join a cabinet and even in fdr's time he brought two top republicans into his cabinet. he brought in businessmen. we got figure that out now. we're under a common problem to get this economy going again. he'll bring in who he can. >> is it true he sought you out to talk about lincoln. >> the interesting thing he was still running for the nomination and i had my cell phone and i picked it up and on the other end it said barack obama i just finished team of rivals and we have to talk. he wanted to talk about lincoln's emotional intelligence. he couldn't believe this man was able to forgive things that had happened in the past, he

for having me on. >> all right, digging deeper, let's bring in senior congressional correspondent dana bash, gloria borgen, and david gergen. dana, you have covered senator mccain for years and covered the presidential campaign in 2008 against president obama and what do you make of this? is there something personal or political going on perhaps? >> i have been half joking all day, that to borrow a phrase from the president, 2008 is calling and it wants its presidential campaign back. because you can see and hear both -- in both men's expressions and in the tones of their voices that there is a lot going on there beneath the surface between the two that's probably not resolved from their battle of four years ago. so in that case it is personal and political. but i think it's personal for john mccain in another way, to be fair, because he knew ambassador stevens quite well and he had just been visiting with him, and he feels this need to avenge his death and make it right. he is on a mission that is definitely personal, but it is also political in another way in that you heard from the repub

. >> it has grown massively. under republican administration. >>> 15 before the hour right now. mitt romney offering a frank reason for why he lost thing election to president obama. in a conference call he said, "gifts" offered to minority voters during his first term pushed blacks, hispanics and young people to vote for him again. the gifts were things like the passage of obama care, forgiveness of college loan interest, dream act legislation for undocumented immigrants, and contraception coverage. more than 70% of hispanics and 90% of blacks voted for president obama in the election. >>> a florida restaurant owner is taking criticism of obama care to the next level. john metz, who owns 40 denny's restaurants and a grill and wing franchise will add a 5% surcharge to customers's bills in 2014. he said passing on obama care to customers is his only alternative to a potential rise in health care costs. he will cut the hours to under 30 hours to avoid a penalty he would face for not insuring some of his workers. >>> warner is still deciding whether he wants to run for governor of virginia. he
're about to plummet. it's billionaire warren buffett. he says as long as president obama holds firm on the wealthiest americans paying more taxes, we can just go on right over that fiscal cliff and we will not dive back into recession. how do i know this? because poppy harlow knows this. she sat down for the exclusive interview. you have the greatest access to warren. every time there's news, you seem to get it. i was looking at your interview earlier. he's very candid with you about this. this doesn't look like it's for political gain in any way. we're past the election. it's incredible what he said. >> it really surprised me. i can't think of another big-named ceo out there who feels this way about the fiscal cliff. they're all saying do not go over it, we'll plunging into recession. that's what the congressional budget office says. but buffett does want an agreement in washington. he's not saying we can go over the cliff, we'll be fine. but he's saying if we have to, we will. the president needs to take a hard line on these negotiations with republicans. he says, we nparty. here'
for $250,000 and above for their tax rates to go up. i think that it's not on obama. it's on republicans in congress to make concessions to get to a compromise on this deal. >> all right. well, we'll wait to see what happens. >> yes, we will. >> wait for that white puff of spoke to come out of the capitol building at some point. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. the market has turned negative. >> this may end up being the biggest video game of all time, maria tells me. activision's "call of duty: black ops 2" is set to blow up the competition. is it the best play in the video game stock? we'll talk about that. >>> and what was behind the latest glitch in the stock market on monday? and how about the fiscal cliff? ceo duncan niederauer among the ceos in the fix the debt commission. he's later on the "closing bell." stay with us. i was downstairs making coffee, and we heard it. it just came crashing through the roof, out of nowhere. what is it? it's our ira. any idea what coulda caused this? maybe. i just sorta threw a little money here, a little money there. and i loaded up on somethin
; that right? >>guest: as chair of the senate foreign relations committee, john kerry has traveled the globe and serves asen unofficial diplomat for the obama administration but the latest reports have john kerry being tapped to head the pentagon as secretary of defense, some lawmakers openly wander whether someone who famously threw away the medals he was awarded for service in vietnam could credibly serve in a post where he himself would be awards the medals today. >> there would be significant concerns along the lines you raise about senator john kerry jerk as secretary of defense and i don't see those concerns as secretary of state and i have worked with senator john kerry on the foreign relations committee and who would be able to be confirmed as secretary of state. >>reporter: the white house is not commenting on the trial balloons. >>shepard: james rosen, thank you. a good chance you have it in a computer right now, the security software that the cops believe they want to question the man, cops in belize want to question the map after his neighbor was suddenly dead. and this guy has a
or not the president wants to stake political capital. right now, no one is showing much willingness to do that. >> getting back to the standoff between republicans in congress and president obama, i wanted to ask about the meeting that took place today. you had labor leaders there. they have said in an interview if medicare and social security are part of any deal that president obama strikes with republicans, labor will be against it. and i look at that and i say, how can that not be part of any deal that obama strikes with republicans? how much trouble will he have on the left selling any deal he reaches? >> it's going to be hard to sell. any deal that deals with those entitlement issues. harry reid said clearly here, social security, we will not touch social security as part of this package. so it's probably going to end upcoming down to e medicare and medicaid. if the president starts to negotiate on those issues because he'll have to do some of that in order to get republicans support on taxes. even mitch mcconnell went to the floor and said, i will consider higher revenues, but the presi
thought he wasn't compromised. he was fired. maybe it was the right decision at the white house and maybe not. the situation, someone who had independent standing is gone. and the second term of obama and hillary clinton is gone. strikes me that the second term of the obama administration is going to be full of loyalists not people who might stand up to the obama white house. not that petraeus did in case of september. he went along with the convenient line but to be fair maybe he had national security reasons for thinking it was prudent thing to do at the time. >> if he does testify in close or open sessions, the members are going to hear about what was really going on in benghazi and why he said what he did publicly. bill brings up another point, the bigger question is what second term they want and what they want to be surrogate in agencies. >> bret: to bill's point about sticking around and he thought he was sticking around, i want to remind people that broadwell gives this state in the denver, october 26. >> now, i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the c.i.a. annex had actua
, pennsylvania's arlen specter and bob bennett of utah lost their re-election bids in 2010. all right, enough of that real news, we'll gather around the water cooler and talk about the angry letters that the white house has been receiving since president obama's re-election. many solidly conservative states have been flooding the white house's we the people website with petition requests to secede from the union of the united states. for help on that john stuart n >> they have received petitions from 20 states who would like to cede from the union. >> wait. i'm not sure exactly which 20 states those are or which people they are in those states but i think i can express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. >> stop, don't come back. [ applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were always so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it was like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy now with the new you but pretty soon you'll need those fat pants again. oh, domino's in staten island. >> alwa
of president obama, the combination of spending cuts and tax increases and new revenue right? which has got to be the solution. >> absolutely. i think what we have to be careful of is that these cuts are proper cuts that they don't create havoc in the lives of the most vulnerable and low income individuals. >> bill: that's what i wanted to ask you about. do we know where these cuts would hit and who would be hardest hit by them? >> well, of course, across-the-board cuts, sequestration takes place, which of course, i could not support we're going to see this 8% to 10% cut across the board. so you're going to see children's programs cut. you're going to see other cuts, some terrible, terrible cuts take place. that people really cannot tolerate. of course, we need to -- and i still say we need to make sure defense cuts are on the table because we're look at a defense budget that's full of waste fraud and abuse. and that's full of billions of dollars that are there for cold war era weapons systems research that doesn't ma
are both in red right now. the dow is down by 15 points, nasdaq flat coming off earlier highs. >>> president obama says the u.s. is not going to fall off of the "fiscal cliff." during a press conference the president says he is willing to work with republicans to keep automatic spending cuts and tax hikes from taking effect at the end of the year. the president wants to maintain current tax rates for people make under $250,000 a year. but he says the wealthy will have to pay more taxes which has been a sticking point for some republicans. >>> the maker of blackberry is getting ready to release a new smartphone. research in motion sails the blackberry 10 will hit the market at the end of january. the company delayed the new phone to make some changes. guys, looks like i might be getting an upgrade on my blackberry. >> about time. >> aren't you happy about that? >> i am! going to be cool. >> and apparently, you can use your blackberry and get a cup of tea now at starbucks, too? >> that's right. it's building on its tea business. starbucks spent $620 million to buy teavana of at
, climate change. >> ben gotti. >> and benghazi. >> i thought it was all right. they covered most of the principle stories of the day or week. wi us most struck by the difference in president obama himself. this was a more confident, relaxed, even assertive president or person than we had seen before. and he staked out his position on taxes. and, then, of course, he rolled it back. >> he was impassioned in his defense of susan rice, something we rarely see from the president. >> right. so winning another four years will do that for you. let's contrast with the loser of the election. that's mitt romney. he hasn't given any interviews or offered any positive forward statements. instead he did a conference call with donors and people were able to listen in and romney was quoted at not directly saying that president obama gave gifts to women, gays, and free contraceptives was very popular with young women. is romney really getting beat up by the press because all he has are these comments that made him look bitter? >> well, he made them. >> like the 47%. >> yeah. it reinforces that 47
fox 5 on time traffic. >> all right. thank you very much. in today's top story, president obama has his first full press conference in more than 8 months later this afternoon. and it comes as the president's plate is filling up quickly. >> the president put press conferences on hold during the election but since then we've seen issue after issue crop up. not the least of which is this scandal involving the now former cia director david patraeus and also one of the nation's top generals. >>> the president will have to do something of a juggling act when he scares off. for starters his high profile cia director is gone because of a sex scandal. and john allen is under investigation for e-mails he sent to a patraeus family friend. he got backing from his immediate boss. >> no one should leap to conclusions. general allen is doing an excellent job in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence. >> one prominent conservative is questioning the conduct of the fbi in both cases. >> let me begin with general allen who is smeared by an investigation who got out of control.
tongue. the college age daughters of many of my friends voted for obama because they were completely turned off by the knee neanderthal comments like the suggestion of legitimate rape. so on one hand some of the far right saying they're right and plowed of their stance and others now saying they would have liked to have cut off somebody's tongue if they say this again. i just want to see where it goes and if there are more moderate voiceses that can bring balance to a party that seems out of control. thank you both for your time this evening. >>> coming up, you know the phrase. and you love the phrase. >> fired up! ready to go! >> who knew there was an incredible story behind it? the woman who gave the president his rallying cry joins us next. . i have a cold... i took dayquil, but i still have a runny nose. [ male announcer ] truth is, dayquil doesn't work on runny noses. what? [ male announcer ] it doesn't have an antihistamine. really?

this is how the president did it. >> and also paul ryan talking about the urban vote. norah? >> that's right. john, it was almost as if romney told supporters that obama won because he gave a chicken in every pot to everybody. >> exactly. and he's now become to -- this was essentially the sentiment at the heart of that secretly recorded video that came out during the campaign where he talked about the 47%, the people so dependent on government they would vote for the president because he was going to hand things out. romney spent several weeks then trying to walk back from that statement. now he seems to be embracing it aga again, the idea basically that these voters are so easily manipulated that the president merely needed to dangle a thing or two in front of them and they would rush to him at the polls. the reason you would embrace this argument if you're in the romney camp is because the alternative argument, that they totally misread the electorate is a more painful one to embrace. >> the notion that nancy cordes raised, is the president clearly desirous of reaching out with good intent

of washington and elsewhere, right? they are being felt in afghanistan, president obama losing his cia director and wondering about general john allen. we have the author of "little america, the war within the war for afghanistan." nice to have you back on the program. you say you've just heard it from general allen's camp, what are some of the news that you can report about general allen, and all of this news about him potentially being involved in a scandal himself? >> yeah, jenna, late breaking developments here. we heard overnight, of course, that the pentagon was saying that there were 20 to 30,000 pages of documents of emails supposedly exchanged between general john allen, the top commander in afghanistan and jill kelley, this woman at the heart of the petraeus-broadwell scandal. a senior u.s. official who is close to general allen has just told me that in fact it wasn't 20 to 30,000 separate emails, there were hundreds of messages, but really not the big number that is being bandied out there and said that most of these were similarly innocuous messages, in many cases messages sent by m

not know. is there any talk about revenue spending, creating job programs. when president obama came into office, the stimulus was part of his agenda. as you look at the financial situation, is there talk of big spending right now? guest: there is talk of job training and infrastructure -- from this increased revenue. is that something congress can agree on? i think that in this climate of austerity, as people are starting to think about the deficit, i do not think we will necessarily see a large-scale stimulus like the one we have before. there is a fascinating statistic and a national journal story that they now spend $7 on programs for senior citizens and elderly people for every $1 it spends on young people. and at $1 goes to everything from education, student loans, job training. so the federal government spending at this point is really skewed towards taking care of the older population of versus helping the younger ones succeed. that'll be a tricky thing moving forward. alternately, to take care of older people you need to of younger people have a good jobs and making good wag

boehner. right now, there has been a lot of concern, especially among the progressives, but beyond that, insuring that people pay their fair share. but the trade-off, it is clear president obama has said, is cuts to what they call entitlement programs -- medicare, medicaid, social security. talk about these -- our guest yesterday sir anderson called, earned income benefits, actually, not entitlements. >> social security is something people have paid into their entire lives, not just people on the verge of receiving the benefits, even workers have been in the work force for some time. what is extraordinary about this moment to make, what really define president of his first term from a domestic and economic perspective is the recovery from the financial crisis was one that was a recovery for the wealthiest in america -- corporate profits boomed, wall street and the stock market increased at a time when the foreclosure crisis continued to worsen, very little attention was paid to that, very little has been done about unemployment. so the income gap, the rich-poor gap in the u.s. is the hi
